Basic New Year's Hangover Cure
Feeling it from last night’s festivities? We have just the cure!
A super basic, no-fail Bloody Mary.
Who wants to mess with all the toppings and garnish when your head is pounding? Not us! But bacon- that’s a necessity. Grease + Protein + Amazing Bloody Mix + A Decent Vodka = Bye Bye Hangover.
We recommend throwing a package of thick cut bacon in the oven at 375 on a foil-lined tray for about 12-15 min (keep an eye on it and check every couple of minutes after 12 min). Once the bacon is as crisp or floppy as you like and has cooled just a a bit, be sure to lay your bacon on a few paper towels to catch the excess grease.
While the bacon is cooking, grab some ice and fill nearly to the rim, and pour in your vodka of choice. Next, be sure to shake your mix really well before opening, then pour ‘til about 3/4 full (to leave room for the bacon!). Don’t forget to mix or stir. If you’re feeling extra lazy, just grab a butter knife and give it a swirl.
For this recipe we went with Monopolowa Vodka and Michelada and Bloody Maria Mix. The Bloody Maria Mix has just the right amount of spice for most and brings a thick, homemade feel to your Bloody. Add pepper and hot sauce of choice if you need more kick.
Once the bacon is finished and the grease has been patted off, chop a few slices into bits and add to your mix along with a strip or two and enjoy!
